Nov 5, 2011 Rally For Safety
Put on by the Children of last weeks motorcycle casualty, the Malahat Fire Department, and the Vancouver Island Safety Council, the 1st annual Rally for Safety event brought hundreds of bikers from all walks of life.
It was amazing to see so many people come together on such short notice for such an important cause.
Nice getup! The local Steam Punks would love it!
We swarm onto the Legislature demanding that the Malahat be divided by concrete the entire length of it.
This is not a new issue. Anyone who lives here, knows how deadly this road can be. There are many safer roads with fewer turns that have barriers the whole way, so why not the Malahat? This is the ONLY road to Victoria, and gets shut down routinely because of accidents. Too many people have died in head on collisions.
A moment of silence is held for all highway victims, not just bikers.
The Malahat Fire Chief makes a speech. This man has seen more than enough tragedy on our highway. We want to put an end to head on collisions! Thank you all for coming out. Write to the ministry of transport people! Make this an election issue! Tell them we have seen enough!
What Rumble Strip???
